Bullets fly at complex ‘Shocking’ no one was injured say police BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

C

“This facility was badly needed.” The meeting was also arranged to celebrate the $7.2 million in funding from provincial and federal governments for the pre-construction through the Knowledge Infrastructure Program, a fund for repairs and expansion at research and educational facilities at postsecondary institutions.

hilliwack RCMP are investigating a weekend shooting that left bullets in the basements of two Vedder Road townhomes. In the early morning hours of Nov. 5, Mounties were called to a complaint of shots fired near the 5900 block of Vedder Road. Police weren’t able to determine where the sound originated until the following afternoon, when residents of two different units in the Grace Arbour townhouse complex along Vedder reported that they had found bullets on the ground floor of their homes. Grace Arbour strata president L i n d a Fe l l i n g EB IRST told the Times that one of the First reported on residents heard a chilliwacktimes.com noise during the night and went to the family room and found a “framed glass picture” on the ground. “He thought, ‘I’ll just clean it up tomorrow, it just fell off the wall,’” she said. The next morning, another resident came to Felling’s door to tell her that she had found “bullet holes” in the building. It was soon discovered that the broken picture was the result of bullets fired into the complex.

T

he theme of jobs was front and centre Tuesday as politicians discussed the new University of the Fraser Valley (UFV) campus at Canada Education Park (CEP). But it wasn’t a lack of jobs in the province that was the subject. It was the opposite, a future shortage of employees, and how UFV— both in trades and in professional programs—is helping. “There are still jobs looking for people,” Chilliwack-Hope MLA Bar-

New state-of-the-art university campus set to provide workers with the right kind of knowledge ry Penner said. “And that’s where the trades facility comes into play.” “Our biggest challenge for the coming decade will be to ensure we have enough workers,” said Naomi Yamamoto, minister of advanced education. Yamamoto was at the UFV Trades and Technology Centre along with Penner, Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon MP Mark Strahl, Abbotsford-South MLA Jon van Dongen, Mayor

Sharon Gaetz, and UFV staff and executive, including president and vice-chancellor Mark Evered. Media were also invited to attend the “Open Doors—Open Knowledge” event to showcase the construction under way at the new CEP campus, which is scheduled to open in May, 2012. “This is going to allow us to move out of our aging facilities into stateof-the-art facilities,” Evered said.

Little support for city hall move BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

P

romontory Heights and downtown Chilliwack were the subjects of city council all-candidates meetings held this week. Approximately 150 people as well as 17 out of 20 candidates attended Monday’s meeting to discuss issues on Promontory, and 18 candidates and more than 200 people were at Evergreen Hall on Tuesday to talk downtown. Yarrow will be the focus of the final meeting on Thursday evening. On Tuesday, the candidates introduced themselves to those in attendance, followed by a questionand-answer period, which was kicked off by a Downtown BIA question on the topic of relocating city hall. A statement was read and posted that talked about city hall’s historic tradition in “a vibrant and bustling downtown core.” The statement talked about the decline over the past few decades “in investment and energy” downtown due to “the decentralization of services and infrastructure” and that some reinvestment, includ-

each candidate supported a plan for the “eventual re-establishment” of city hall downtown. While three candidates (Ron Browne, Ron Wedel and Phill Bruce) suggested it might be a good idea, four gave qualified maybe-in-the-longterm responses (or didn’t answer the

question), and 11 of the 18 said it was a bad idea. “It wouldn’t make much of a difference,” Rob Stelmaschuk said. “Relocating city hall is not going to do it,” Gord Kornelesen said. “In short, no,” Chuck Stam said. “No, I wouldn’t support moving city hall downtown,” Jason Lum said. Other candidates—Sue Attrill, Mitchell Nosko, Dick Harrington, Garth Glassel—called the idea fiscally irresponsible. After the city hall discussion, a number of questions submitted by attendees were asked. The topics included the purpose of the Chilliwack Economic Partners Corporation, steering developers downtown, and residential development in the Eastern Hillsides. Responses ran the gamut, illustrating to those familiar with city hall, how some candidates are unaware of the role of the municipal government and, in some cases, what had already been done or is underway at city hall. Absent from the Evergreen Hall meeting were Ian Carmichael and Roger Myers. See ALL-CANDIDATES, Page 13

Over four editions we will run the candidates’ answers to the first two questions: 1.What can you tell voters about your background and experience that will

prepare you to sit on Chilliwack city council? 2.What issue or issues have motivated you to run for council and how do you think you can help?

1.What can you tell voters about your background and experience that will prepare you to sit on Chilliwack city council? I first had the opportunity to serve two years on the Future Plan (OCP) Committee prior to being elected to Chilliwack city council in 1999. I’ve been honoured with re-election in 2002, 2005, 2008 and hopefully 2011. I’m blessed with a loving wife and four wonderful children and want to pass on a community to all of our children worth living, working and playing in! I’ve also run our small business in Chilliwack since 1992.

1.What can you tell voters about your background and experience that will prepare you to sit on Chilliwack city council? My background and experience to prepare me to sit on city council are as follows: Since 1981 I started in general construction; in 1986 I opened Little Mountain Greenhouses and then sold it to start dairy farming in 1991; I am no longer dairy farming but am currently still involved in construction and also in real estate investments. I have also fulfilled various leadership positions in the community.

1. What can you tell voters about your background and experience that will prepare you to sit on Chilliwack city council? My experience as a senior manager in the forest industry by necessity developed my skills in longterm (decades long) outlook with respect to land use management and planning. My volunteer experience with regional long-range planning as a member of the Valley Choices Committee was an invaluable education in the complexities of long-term civic and regional growth challenges facing our area. I believe my approach to these issues of reasonable, rational and realistic, balanced decisionmaking with a “big picture” perspective is shared by the majority of residents and the representation they desire at the civic level.

2.What issue or issues have motivated you to run for council and how do you think you can help? No single issue motivated me to run this year or any other election. I strongly believe that leadership in local government is not the role of any one single person or position; it is the responsibility of all in elected office up through the entire team of employees to the taxpayers who pay the bills and hold us to account. Together, through hard work and good team work, we can navigate the challenges of tomorrow, grow as a community and retain that special feel we call Chilliwack.

2.What issue or issues have motivated you to run for council and how do you think you can help? I do not have any particular issues that motivated me to run for council. My motivation to run is an appreciation for my community and subsequently wanting to make a postitive contribution to this city as city councillor.

2.What issue or issues have motivated you to run for council and how do you think you can help? As the first runner up in the 2008 civic campaign I’ve been encouraged by many to continue with the message of Reasonable, Rational and Realistic (the 3R) approach to the issues and challenges facing our community. I believe a comprehensive review and renewal of our Official Community Plan (OCP) is a necessary and immediate step required to garner the public input and ownership of the long term growth and prosperity of all the “communities of community” that comprise our City of

ne of Chilliwack’s largest private employers is expanding. Soprema Inc. announced plans to build a second production plant on the same property of its current operation on Yale Road West. “After a relatively quiet period of more than three years of industrial development, it is hoped that this investment—a vote of confidence in Chilliwack, will echo Soprema’s beginnings during the last economic downturn,” site director Paul Boileau said in a press release. Soprema makes commercial waterproof materials—mostly used on roofs—that are used all over the world. Soprema’s products are on the European Parliament, the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas, the Molson Centre in Montreal, housing in the Arctic and the second level of the Eiffel Tower in Paris. The membranes are also used in green roofs including on buildings surrounding Beijing’s “Bird’s Nest” stadium. Closer to home, Boileau said that SopreUFV, from page 1 Of the $7.2 million, $3 million came from the federal government and $4.2 million from the provincial government. The money is part of the $40 million campus development project at CEP. After speeches by dignitaries, those in attendance took a tour of the under-construction facility. The new building includes an aboriginal gathering place, classrooms, research laboratories and offices for staff

ma’s waterproof membranes were used in every new construction project for the Vancouver-Whistler 2010 Olympics. Boileau wouldn’t say how many new jobs would be created in Chilliwack, but he said “a small number” of new employees would be needed in about a year when the expansion is complete. The current workforce ranges between 25 and 45. He said that the expansion was made possible because of support from all three levels of government—a “pro-business” city council, federal government policies, and Chilliwack MLA John Les, “the man with the original vision for Chilliwack’s Industrial Park.” Boileau also credited his Chilliwack employees’ work ethic, discipline and honesty. Soprema opened its Chilliwack plant in February 2000, and was the first plant in the Chilliwack Business Estates business park. The German company celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2008. Boileau is also chair of the British Columbia Division of the Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters, and works hard to promote the local manufacturing sector.

riving home from the Promontory all-candidates meeting on Monday evening, I was listening to a radio show in which economists compared the countries of Europe and the current economic crisis to a dysfunctional family. One economist called Greece and Italy the naughty children to the reluctant “father” in Germany, and the not-so-reluctant “mother” in France. On Monday, some Promontory residents had questions for city council candidates about what those running in the Nov. 19 election would do to assuage the various concerns of those living up on “the hill.” And I was struck by the family metaphor. It could be argued that those Promontory residents who make the complaints (emphasis on those who complain, not the other 95 per cent) are, like Greece, the petulant, whining child of Chilliwack. The term NIMBY was created for some of these people who, one by one, move to a hillside suburban community and then demand no more development on that hillside suburban community. And, those who complain, move to Promontory, and then are suddenly up in arms because there are only two roads in and out, nothing for kids to do, no

PAUL J. HENDERSON

SimplyA Musing parks, few shops, no fire department and weak response by police? Well why did you move there, then? Let’s be frank, this area of Chilliwack was planned terribly, but those who move there did so of their own accord and it’s not like plans for parks and emergency services and shopping were ever in place and cancelled. So if Promontory is the whiny child that got himself stuck up a tree because he climbed there and now wants the rest of us to help, what are the other communites in Chilliwack? Well Yarrow has a duality to it, so maybe it’s a couple: On the one hand a grumpy, conservative uncle, and the other a friendly, hippie aunt. But they live on the other side of the river and hardly ever visit. Downtown Chilliwack? That’s the down-on-his-luck father of the family. The once proud centre of the community who took a few too many drinks. But he’s in AA now and, fingers crossed, things are looking up!

Fairfield Island is the responsible mother who seems to have it all together and only has problems when the Fraser River rises and water creeps into her kitchen. Rosedale and Greendale are the conservative, strict Dutch grandparents of the little family. Often overlooked and forgotten but, ironically, the stereotypical face of Chilliwack. Chilliwack Mountain? The rich, smart, successful daughter. Sardis? Well that’s the big brother who everyone (secretly) loves best. Everyone wants to hang out next to him, but then those who aren’t next to him tend to stab him in the back. Vedder Crossing? Given he is basically south Sardis, he’s a borderline difficult child. On the edge of turning out as a responsible son but pulled in the direction of the wild life—Cultus Lake and the Chilliwack River Valley—(CRV) just steps away. Then there are Cultus Lake and the CRV. Cultus is the estranged child trying to take care of herself. We still call and try to offer guidance, but she still complains a lot. And the CRV is like the slightly neglected, stepchild of the city. Not technically related, but close, and generally loved. There may be dysfunction, but all in all it’s a good family. We all love each other, I think.

t always happens in a city election. Someone takes issue with how much city staff are paid, or how many city staff there are, or asks what the heck do all those city staff do all day? City staff, of course—similar to those practising earthquake drills—are best advised to get under their desks during election campaigns and just wait until the dust settles. Part of the reason for targeting staff is pretty simple: many of us in the private sector are simply jealous of them. They, for the most part, have job security, great pensions, weekends off, and better food vending machines and coffee. In exchange for all the goodies they receive, they get to be piñatas for politicians and taxpayers. That is, until those same politicians end up having to get said staff to pull together endless reports and sit in endless meetings listening to politicians spout campaign rhetoric that has little to do with the reality of running a city. Then said politicians usually realize they need the staff and redirect their scapegoating to other levels of government—until, of course, they want to run for positions in those government offices. Now, do we think that all city staff are hard-working angels? No, of course not. But, for the vast majority of city staffers, days are spent toiling to ensure taxpayers get good service for their dollars. But who would really miss it if a couple of city planners, bylaw officers or recreation workers disappeared? No one —well, perhaps no one until you wanted a development project approved, that rat-infested house next door cleaned up, or someone in the community centre to make sure your child didn’t get pushed around by some other kids.

School trustees need to make a little noise

Editor: What’s the role of a school trustee? If we go by what many of the candidates are saying in your paper it can be simply categorized: increase the budget; hire more teachers and have smaller class sizes; get along well with everybody and don’t interfere. How lame can you get? Realistically the government is not going to give the Chilliwack Board more money because they go cap in hand asking for “more please.” No extra money means, most likely, no extra teachers and smaller classes. The other idea of getting along and not interfering makes me think that some of these candidates are there either for the prestige or the money. Look at the grad rates and student achievement out here. Is that something to be complacent about? Some of these candidates, including the current chairman, say they shouldn’t interfere. Why not? Do they like mediocrity? Do they think that the current results are satisfactory? Get real. Remember too that teachers are currently withholding some services because of a labour dispute. I’ve never been able to figure out how that helps students. My vote goes to the ones who will make noise and who are not afraid to say things are not where they should be. If that’s called

Too quick to judge a book by its cover Editor: To the judgmental lady at Superstore Monday, Nov. 7: As my mom and I pulled in to a handicap parking spot and got out of the vehicle (both on foot), you chose to approach us. You also chose to make a hurtful judgment, that because I could walk I therefore did not need a handicap tag. My mom attempted to politely inform you of the situation (even though it was none of your busi-

ness) and be on our way, but you would have none of that. Not only did you assume that I didn’t need this, but then you went on to assume that I was completely fine and that my doctor has just given me what I wanted. First off, yes you are correct, my doctor did assist in issuing the handicap tag, but that is because my doctor knows the entire situation (unlike yourself) and what I’ve gone through and require. My doctor therefore saw it fitting to pursue this on my behalf. Then you decided to make a judgment that requires at least seven years of schooling to make and know at least most of a situation. You assumed I did not need a handicap tag because I look perfectly fine. Well, for your information, I was in a very serious car accident that required me to be in a coma and resulted in many injuries, some of which include a severe brain injury

and a broken pelvis in four locations. Due to my broken pelvis, I was in a wheelchair, on crutches, back to a wheelchair, and then progressed to a cane and now can walk with no mobility devices. The purpose of a handicap tag is not limited to those who are in a wheelchair (as you so bluntly put it). They are there for people who struggle with a physical disability, whatever that may look like. Some physical disabilities require a wheelchair and some don’t, some require a cane and some don’t, and some require nothing at all, but still have limitations. My limitations currently are that I cannot walk far distances, making handicap spots ideal for my situation. You stated that we should not use up an entire space for this limitation and the driver should just drop me off at the front. Well, due to my severe brain injury, I get very overwhelmed and disoriented, therefore causing panic attacks and/or me to wander off, and therefore causing whoever dropped me off as well as myself, stressed this may occur. Your judgmental ways, are basically saying it’s OK to judge a person by their appearance. So is one then suppose to assume that all obese people eat McDonald’s every day, or every person who walks alone is a loner, or every girl with short hair is a lesbian, or every guy with a bit of style is gay, or every person who wears black is depressed? It’s not OK to make these generalizations. As

the old saying goes, “Don’t judge a book by its cover.” In the same way, don’t judge people by their appearance(s), especially when you don’t know one’s situation. I apologize for my rudeness when the situation occurred and became intense, but I was dumbfounded someone could make such quick judgments and assumptions when not knowing any information. Ariel Steegstra Chilliwack

Pass the weed, not the ‘dirt’ Mr. Editor Editor: Are you aware that we are in the year 2011? Why is it necessary to bring up “dirt” about our city candidates for something they may have done in 2001? If Garth Glassel was growing marijuana, (which we don’t even know, as he was a landlord) that’s just another reason to vote for him as far as I’m concerned. J. Shaw Chilliwack

Jason Lum 1.What can you tell voters about your background and experience that will prepare you to sit on Chilliwack city council? I am a small business owner, an entrepreneur, a community leader, and a dedicated volunteer. As a small business owner I have experienced firsthand both the excitement and the challenges of operating a business. I have extensive experience managing people, finances, and customers. As an entrepreneur I recognize the opportunities that Chilliwack has to offer. I believe that strong innovative leadership will attract bright, talented people to this city to work, live, and prosper. I believe positive change happens at the community level. I take great pride in my work and have been inspired by the people and organizations that I am involved with; Chamber of Commerce, CEPCO, Sto:lo Development Corporation, Community Services (among others). Chilliwack has a long, proud history of rolling up its sleeves and helping those in need and I am proud to be a part of that tradition. I believe these skills, combined with my diverse experience and an unwavering commitment to this community, make me an excellent choice for your council team. 2.What issue or issues have motivated you to run for council and how do you think you can help? It wasn’t issues that motivated me to run for council—it was the opportunities. I will be your progressive, forwardthinking voice on council. We cannot be afraid to look at the issues facing local government and respond with innovative new ideas. Our ability to leverage partnerships in education, the private sector, and senior levels of government will be key in tackling issues around rising costs, population growth, sustainability and an increasingly competitive economic development landscape. I have the skill set and proven experience for the job, and I welcome the opportunity.

The Death of Brother James

When Big Joe Williams recorded his song Brother James in 1937 a blues song about the death of a drunk driver it was one of the first expressions of concern about drunk driving, found in popular music. Search: “Joe Williams youtube Brother James”. 1937 was also a year in which drunk driving was getting some serious attention at Cedric Hughes the governmental and corporate level. Grim, skull emblazoned warning posters were widely displayed announcing that “driving and alcohol don’t mix”. The American National Safety, through a Committee on Tests for Intoxication, developed a “Standard Alcohol Influence Form” for Law Enforcement. The momentum continued into 1938, when a gathering of the American Medical Association’s “Committee to Study Problems of Motor Vehicle Accidents” reportedly gave impetus to a soon to be established a “.15 blood alcohol level” as the threshold evidence for a conviction for impaired driving. That permissive number stayed in place for many years, gradually being reduced in North American jurisdictions, to “.10” then the familiar “.08” and now on to “zero tolerance” levels in some places and some circumstances. Statistics for “alcohol impaired driving fatalities” have, it appears, only been kept in the United States since 1982. In 1982, it is suggested that 26,000 people died in this category, with a reduction to about 12,000 for year 2007. In total, from 1982 to present, there have been close to half a million deaths due to alcohol, on American roadways. From 1937, when brother James died, to the present moment, what is the death toll? Millions? The statistics in this area, even since 1982, are notoriously controversial,

Strange package found in mailbox

Bomb squad called in, finds ‘improvised firework’ BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

T

h e R C M P ’s e x p l o s i v e detection unit was called in to Chilliwack Wednesday after a suspicious package was found in a Sardis post office box. Police say a Canada Post employee found a strange package Monday morning in the outgoing mail compartment of a community mailbox on Cen-

tennial Drive. The area was cleared and police called in its bomb disposal unit. After the package was removed, Mounties determined it to be an “improvised firework” and non-threatening. “This situation was treated as if the package was an explosive,” said RCMP EB IRST spokesperson First reported on Const. Tracy chilliwacktimes.com Wolbeck. “Until the officers who specialize in the explosives field were confident that the package was not a threat, every precaution was taken to keep the public as safe as possible.”

Biggest laughs Stam earned a chuckle when he said Ken Huttema accused him of being so cheap he was using election signs from three elections ago. Chad Eros also got some smiles when he suggested a movie-themed downtown could be called Chillywood or Hollywack. Promontory concerns On Monday, 17 of the candidates showed up at Promontory Heights elementary to answer one main question: “What do you perceive as the major political issues/concerns for the Promontory Heights community, and, if elected, how would you address them?” Public safety was brought up by Chad Eros, Mitchell Nosko, Sue Attrill, Phill Bruce and Gerry Goosen. Infrastructure and community planning were issues cited up by Mike Britton, Jason Lum, Dick Harrington and Gord Kornelsen, Glassel brought a sample of the City of Chilliwack’s new logo, claimed it has cost taxpayers

New logo numbers off $500,000 and illustrated waste at city hall. “Yet you guys had to have a fundraiser to buy reflective safety vests so that volunteers could pick up garbage on City of Chilliwack streets.” Mayor Sharon Gaetz told the Times Wednesday that Glassel was off by a longshot. “It cost $5,500,” she said via email. “We are using up all of our business cards, and stationary and nothing will be wasted. . . . New vehicles will get the new logo—but as everyone can clearly see, our vehicles are still sporting our city crest. The candidate is mistaken.” Fire department response times were also the subject of some discussion, even earning a jeer from the crowd after Kornelsen said he

was told response times to Promontory are in the range of two minutes. Ron Browne has taken a particular interest in firefighter staffing levels and issued a press release on the topic this week. In it, Browne said, if elected, he would work to speed up the current long-term plan that wouldn’t see staffing levels increase to 40 full-time firefighters from the current 24 until the year 2020. Absent from the Promontory meeting were Ian Carmichael, Ken Huttema and Roger Myers.

ave you ever found yourself doing something your brain tells you that you shouldn’t be doing? I’m not talking about drinking out of the milk carton or taking candy from your kid’s Halloween stash. I’m talking about those moments when you’re faced with a choice that completely throws common sense out the window. I had one of those moments. It was the day I jumped off the side of a mountain. I was standing on the edge admiring the view when I heard a voice whisper in my ear,“run!” I hesitated, but then I heard it again.This time it was louder,“GO! RUN! DON”T STOP!” So, I did. For some reason I

Go ahead . . . just jump! listened and jumped right off the side of that mountain. I remember running hard and seeing the edge come closer and closer. Just a few more steps and I would plummet a couple thousand feet to the ground. My body was beginning to agree with my brain at this point asking, “what are you doing Shawn?” But that voice in my ear? It didn’t stop. It just kept telling me to run and that everything would be OK. I felt unsure, but I kept running until my feet were no longer touching the ground. I

couldn’t believe it, I had actually jumped! Looking down I expected the ground to come fast and hard, but instead I soared upward and began to fly. Now, before you write me off as some crazy guy who had some drug-induced hallucination, what I just described to you was the day I went para-gliding. My wife bought this adventure for me because she loves me (at least I hope that’s the case). The voice in my ear was the pilot that I rode tandem with giving me instructions and assuring me

that everything was going to be OK. Jumping off that mountain reminded me again about how faith in God works. I’ve learned that faith is fuelled by jumping. It doesn’t make sense which is why most people never exercise it. They’d rather stand on the ledge than jump off it. I understand that. It’s normal to stand on the ledge. It’s normal to want security. It’s normal to seek comfort. The problem though is that God’s not normal! If you want to experience Him you’re going to have to get over your desire for normalcy.

Faith Today

going to have to jump! The only way you will ever truly experience God is to run over the edge of your own understanding and jump into a life of faith. The Bible says it this way, “Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see” (Hebrews 11:1). The moment you decide to jump is the moment God moves you from your reality to his reality. It means exchanging your comfort for his security. Your way for his way and your will for his will. The bottom line is this, If you want to know God, you’re going to have to jump! I pray that you do. ◗ Shawn is pastor of Promontory Church.You can connect with him at shawn@mypcc.ca.

Peewee Red receiver Quinn Venier goes up for the catch in minor football action Saturday. Venier caught the ball and was hauled down after a 27-yard gain. JB Blue ends with victory The Chilliwack Junior Bantam Blue Giants’ defence broke open a tight game with two late touchdowns to end their regular season Saturday with a 26-6 win over archrival Abbotsford Falcons. The win secured second place for the 9-1 Giants, who will play third-place Abbotsford in the first round of the playoffs next week. The game was still tied 6-6 with just five minutes to play in the fourth quarter when Chilliwack broke open the scoring thanks to back-to-back interceptions returned for TDs by corner Connor Moore and halfback Nick Both. Throughout the game, the Giants defence stymied VCFL leading rusher Chase Claypool and made a tremendous goal line stand in the first half. Linebackers Emerson Smith and Cyrus Tommy led the way with eight tackles each. Cameron Lampart, Ethan Mastin, Chris Derksen, and Jaren Lengert also had great games. On offence, Both had 14 carries for 112 yards while Tyler Sprott (seven carries, 61 yards) and Riley Clayton (four carries, 48 yards) added touchdowns for the Giants. Jake Hunter had his best game on the ground with seven carries for 50 yards. The offensive line was led by Michael Lengert and Gibson Hardie, both of whom had strong games downfield blocking. Peewee Blue blanks Mission Chilliwack Peewee Blue Giants demolished the Mission 9ers 30-0 Saturday. Jayden Mourato scored two touchdowns, and Jake Troyan and Bradley Langlois also both found the end zone. The Giant offensive line was led by Ryan De Mendonca, Aiden Brown

Minor football and Josh Balzer. Chilliwack was dominant on defence, stuffing the 9ers offence all day. Halfback Dustin Wutzke made an interception and Matt Lodge and Noah Thiessen contributed key tackles. Defensive tackles Stade Douglas and Grayson Hardie also had solid games. Bad news for Bears In his first start, Chilliwack Junior Bantam Red Giants quarterback Gabe Olivares led his team to a 30-16 victory over the Langley Bears Saturday. The Bears recovered their opening kick off, and marched down the field to take a 6-0 lead. In their opening series, Billy Hanson ran 85 yards from the line of scrimmage for the Giants first major. Kicker, quarterback and team all-star Jordon Breuker made the two-point conversion, giving his team an 8-6 lead. Head coach Sean Douglas gave Breuker a much-needed rest, preparing him for the upcoming playoffs. The Giants improved as the game progressed, with impressive efforts from the entire offensive line. Noah Chand got his first opportunity from the backfield, with a three-yard gain in the fourth quarter. Emerson Harvey, was stellar on defence, as was Broden Laynes. Hanson racked up 195 yards total rushing, with Gabe Olivares notching 90 yards of his own. See FOOTBALL, Page 21

Mixed curling rink headed to national championship BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

ight months after qualifying for the national mixed curling championships, the Chilliwack rink of Doug Marshall is finally ready to rock and roll. Marshall, third Lisa Deputan, second Darren Jarvis and lead Janet Klebe will travel to Sudbury, Ont., on Thursday to represent British Columbia at the highest level of Canadian mixed curling.

The Marshall rink claimed the provincial crown in March, and have spent much of the time since preparing for the event, which runs from Nov. 12 to 19. Or at least three of them have. Marshall has battled a knee injury, which has limited his time on the ice. He’s back in the hack, now, but 13 games over six days will put his leg to the test. “They’ve been working hard so hopefully it will pay dividends once we get there,” Marshall said before a Tuesday night league game. “I hope my knee holds up.” The team does have high-level experience: Marshall has competed in the National Firefighter’s Championship and Klebe has curled as a third at the National Senior Women’s Championships. But the mixed championships See CURLING, Page 22

Retired Canadian Forces engineer Mike O’Connor still has vivid memories from his time at the head of a bomb disposal team in Kuwait following the Gulf War.

THE

I FORGOTTEN

WAR

The first Gulf War marked a fundamental shift in the role of the Canadian Forces

t is the spring of 1991 and Mike O’Connor is on the phone trying to reach his family back home in Newfoundland. In the background, the rat-a-tat-tat of evening celebratory gunfire is ringing through the desert night. But on the other end of the phone, the operator in Goose Bay, is confused. This man is saying he is in Kuwait, of all places. Which is impossible. “No, no, no, Sergeant O’Connor” the operator says. “The war’s over. Everybody’s home.” Saddam Hussein’s army had been decimated. Order had been restored. And the Canadian government had announced that those few troops who had been deployed to the Gulf were already coming home. “I guarantee you, I’m here,” O’Connor insisted.

The gunfire starts up again. “What’s all that noise?” “That’s rifle fire, now do you believe I’m here?” Photographs tell the story Twenty years later, O’Connor sits in his tidy Ashwell Road home and slowly flips through the pages of a large three-ring binder filled with photographs of his deployment to Kuwait. It starts like any military travelog. There is O’Connor riding a camel. Here he is at a museum in Doha, Qatar. But next, come photos of his cramped living quarters in Kuwait, to which he was deployed shortly after the Iraqis fled. And then Kuwait itself. Miles upon miles of empty roads. Here and there, the scars of a brief and violent war are visible, smoke spewing from oil fires in the distance. Over the penned heading “Job sites in Kuwait City,” come pages and pages of O’Connor sitting and standing amidst

mountains of ammunition boxes and fields of exploded, and sometimes unexploded, bombs. And there’s more: anti-aircraft guns and burning oil fields and bombed out bunkers and roads littered with overturned tanks and burned out cars. Cold War preparation the main mission O’Connor grew up in Low, Que., a tiny town an hour from Ottawa. In 1969, at the age of 23, he joined the army’s engineering corps on the recommendation of his high school principal, who was in the reserves. It was the Cold War and, as such, the military’s main mission was to prepare, prepare, prepare for a possible war with the Soviet Union. O’Connor was sent to Chilliwack to learn trades before being shipped out to Petawawa, Ont. He learned to maintain weapons, operate heavy equipment, blow up a bridge and See WAR, Page B4

They were all in it together

A

s Chilliwack residents gather at cenotaphs this Remembrance Day, not all the veterans they are there to honour will be easy to pick out of a crowd. They might not be looking for women, for example, although many women gave up years of their lives to serve their country. Some, like Mary Fox, who served in the Royal Canadian Air Force for four years, had to return their uniforms when they left the service. Others, like Peggy Smith, who served in the English navy during the Second World War, never sent away for their medals.

They came from all different walks of life . . . but what they wanted from life was the same for women in the service

But if you can get these women talking long enough, it’s clear their service meant as much to them as it did to their male counterparts. “We were fighting for our country just as much as they were,” said Margaret Tinge “We did what we did for our country.” Tinge served with the Army Territorial Service in England for four years during the Second World War. Like most other service women, she took over a job in the army that would

free up a man for battle. Her job was in payroll, and she was stationed in London during the Blitz. What she remembers most about those years were the friendships she forged. Because women in England were conscripted during the war, Tinge got to know some women she would likely never have met in civilian life. “I met all sorts of girls, all sorts of

girls from different walks of life, as different as chalk from cheese,” she said. “But our thinking and what we wanted from life was the same.” Many women who served experienced a similar loosening of the distinctions of social class, religion and nationality. “When I was in the service, it changed some of my ways of thinking,” said Fox, who served with the Air Force in the early 1950s. “We’re all the same. Nobody’s any different; that’s the big thing.” Experiences in the military were often eye opening in other ways too. At age 17, when Peggy Smith first started with the Women’s Royal Naval Service (or the Wrens, as they were then known), some of her education in the ways of the world came compliments of barrack talk among the older girls. “They were talking about lesbians,” she said, recalling one occasion. “I had

“They were talking about lesbians. I had never heard of them, and I thought, ‘ What have I got myself into?’ ” Peggy Smith never heard of them, and I thought, ‘What have I got myself into?’” A Canadian Wren, Kay Rawlings, meanwhile, considers herself fortunate there was an airman assigned to watch over her the night another airman tried to climb into bed with her on an all-male troop train bound for Halifax where she was stationed. Rawlings, who served for three years and married a sailor, said girls who were “raised right” could usually avoid trouble, but in places like Halifax during the war, young women far from home were sometimes vulnerable—or opportunistic, depending on their idea of service.

She vividly remembers three Wrens from Montreal being stripped of their insignia and being sent home for running a bordello. Although many years have passed and their military service has long faded into the history, behind marriage and child rearing, women who served still light up when they describe the camaraderie, adventure and travel that marked their time in uniform. “It was the best thing I ever did,” said Fox. Few women carried guns or flew planes back then (Tinge worked in payroll, Smith organized and filled out paperwork, Fox handed out uniforms and Rawlings spent much of the war preparing and cleaning barracks), but each woman who served gave some of the best years of her life for her country, and the war might have turned out differently without the sum of their humble parts. “When you were in that war, you’d do anything,” said Smith. “We were all in it together.”

build another. For the next 20 years, he would shuttle between postings both in Canada and Germany, where he and other soldiers formed the front line for a war that would never come. Then, rather suddenly, everything changed. The Berlin Wall came down, the Soviet Union descended into chaos, and the Canadian military’s raison d’etre for the last 45 years was suddenly in question. Amidst all this, a dictator in the Mideast decided to invade a tiny oil-rich neighbour. Today, the first Gulf War is largely forgotten. Only a handful of Canadians were deployed to the brief military engagement. Thankfully, none died. But the war marked a fundamental shift in the role the Canadian Forces played, both in Canada and on the world stage. Twenty years later, soldiers have been deployed to Bosnia and Croatia and Kosovo and Libya and, of course, Afghanistan. For O’Connor, it meant that his decades of training would finally be put to the test. Never realized the dangers Just three weeks before the Gulf War was officially concluded, O’Connor arrived in the region. “I really didn’t know what to suspect,” he says. “I’d never been in the situation before.” Now a sergeant, he was involved in keeping the gears of war in, well, gear.

Lest we forget the heroes who fought for our freedom

O’Connor and his crew had to clear every nook and cranny of their area: rooms full of unused ammunition; roads lined with overturned tanks; manhole covers; and Iraqi live-in trenches like the one in the photo. The trenches were the worst. “That was very hard to do,” he says. “These were underground of course. You had to get on your belly and crawl in with your bayonet and prod the sand to make sure there was nothing buried that would blow you up: look for trip wires. It was very, very hot, about 45 degrees celsius. Diagnosed with a mild case of post-traumatic stress disorder, the bunker still haunts his dreams. “I went into this one myself and the first thing I saw is . . . the pair of boots. The way they were lying there, I thought, oh, there was a body in there. “It takes a while. You back out a little bit and take a couple of breaths and you’ve got to go back in. I think of that a lot. But I try to write it down. See if you can get on with it.” O’Connor also worries about the so-called Gulf War Syndrome that has affected veterans of the conflict downwind of burning chemical weapons depots. In many of O’Connor’s photos, the sky is grey, and sometimes black, from the smoke. “You get a cough and you worry, ‘Is that from the smoke?’ ” says O’Connor, who took a buyout in 1993 and left the full-time Forces but served in the reserves until 2005. “But so far I’m OK.

he cadets of Chilliwack’s 147 Airwolf Squadron might look freshfaced this Remembrance Day as they march with veterans from wars gone by, but the roots of their club reach back 70 years, right to the middle of the Second World War. Back then, Canada was at war, and the purpose of cadet training was pretty clear. “Boys who have taken the Air Cadet training are keen to join the RCAF when they reach enlisting age,” one cadet is

they’re being groomed to be good citizens,” said 147 Airwolf Parent Society treasurer Anita Pawlikowski, whose son Nicolas has been an air cadet for three years. There’s no question, however, that today’s cadets share a proud military history. Within a year of being established at Chilliwack junior-senior high school in 1942, for example, the 147 was viewed as “the pace-setter among Western Air Command Squadrons,” according to one newspaper article. During their first ceremonial review in May 1943, Chilliwack flying legend Air Commodore Earl MacLeod, then the air officer commanding Number 2 group, Western Air Command, praised the squadron for its “smartness and precision.” The Chilliwack boys were also commended more than once for their “magnificent physique.” “They look as if they had been carved out of the surrounding mountains—not only from the angle of their physique but also from the strong, determined look on their faces,” said Air Cadet League vicepresident A.W. Carter after inspecting the squadron in 1944. The corps’ first commanding

LEST WE FORGET

officer was Chilliwack junior-senior high principal Carson McGuire, and its first flying officer was legendary local educator G.W. “Wilf” Graham. Under their leadership, cadets spent 1,039 school periods in their first year alone taking actual or related air cadet courses, including aircraft recognition, airmanship, armament drill, first aid, hygiene and sanitation, air force mathematics, meteorology, navigation, physical training and signals. The training was designed to provide a background for enlistment in the RCAF, but many parents and community members valued the program for more than its military role, so there was heated debate when school officials announced they were shutting it down at the end of the war. “Air Cadet training, apart altogether from service in time of war, provides excellent training, mentally and physically, for youth,” said Air Cadet League vice-president A.W. Carter in 1945. The squadron’s school days might have been numbered that year, but to this day youth and their parents are still attracted by “excellent training” Carter talked about. “It’s an absolutely fantastic organization,” said Pawlikowski. “They can go so far; they go to camps in the summer that you don’t have to

They can get their pilot’s licence; they can get their glider’s licence. My son is learning to play the bagpipes.” Participation in the 147 dropped after the war but was bolstered in 1948 with the first Cadettes (female air cadets). The squadron adopted its “Airwolf” moniker in 1984 and has called the Princess Armouries/Drill Hall home since 1987. Cadets today, much like their

WW2 predecessors, still take classes in things like aviation, citizenship, band, drill, effective speaking, biathlon, range and first aid, but now they do it in the evenings at the drill hall. “The kids that are there are wellrounded kids,” said Pawlikowski. The program is open to all youth aged 12 to 18, and Pawlikowski said anyone can do well in air cadets. Take 147 Airwolf Squadron’s highest ranking cadet, Warrant Officer

First Class Dan Whittle. Now 18 and in his last year of air cadets, he wasn’t always a model cadet. “Let’s just say I was kind of a little brat when I was younger,” he said. Looking back, Whittle said, he could see he was on the wrong path, stealing things and vandalizing, before a couple of friends took him to army cadets in Surrey when he was 12. He was impressed by the pride the warrant officer there took in what he was doing. “I wanted to be like that,” said Whittle. He joined 147 when he moved to Chilliwack to live with his dad four years ago, and on Remembrance Day, as a warrant officer himself, he’ll be leading the flight to the cenotaph downtown. “It taught me how to look at life with a different perspective,” said Whittle of his time with the 147 Airwolf Squadron. No doubt there will be others in the crowd at the cenotaph Friday who will know what he means, especially if they too have shared in the corps’ rich history over the last 70 years. ◗ See more photos of Chilliwack 147 Airwolf Squadron on our websiet at www.chilliwacktimes.com.

Veterans and a guest get free admission to game

T

his weekend the Chiefs have a pair of exciting games with a pair of important themes attached to them. Friday’s game is the annual Remembrance Day game, where the Chiefs pay respect to those who have served and are currently serving to protect our country. All veterans and current members of the forces will be admitted for no charge and can bring one guest with them. Ninety-two-year-old Second World War veteran Charlie Young will perform the Canadian anthem on his alto saxaphone, the Fraser Valley Pipe Band will entertain during an intermission, and there will be various displays on the concourse. This game will be extra special for a quartet of the Rivermen players and one of the assistant coaches: Austin Plevy, Mike Tebbutt, Ryan Bakken and Darnell Dyck suited up on a regular basis for the Chiefs and Harvey Smyl last season, while Langley assistant coach Bobby Henderson

BARRY DOUGLAS

Chiefs Insider was the captain of the Chiefs in 2002. The game will also pit my son, Darnell, and I against each other for the first time in a BCHL game, so to save my voice I will throw the answer out right now to the question I have been asked the most in the last few weeks and sure to be asked a lot on Friday: Who will you be cheering for? A couple of points for Darny and a two points for a Chiefs win works for me and since the Chiefs and Rivermen are in different conferences this season, I would be happy to see the game go to overtime, for the fans’ sakes, of course. Saturday night is First

Nations night, when the Chiefs host the Salmon Arm Silverbacks at 7 p.m. at Prospera Centre. Chiefs volunteer co-ordinator Zelda Hunt and Sts’ailes Development Corporation tourism officer Paula Cranmer-Underhill have done a fantastic job of organizing this event, which includes a must-see Sts’ailes drummer performance led by Nelson Leon featuring dancers in regalia before the game. As well, members of the Bald Eagle Festival will be on hand, there will be artisans displaying their wares and the 2011 King and Queen from the BC Elders gathering will be at the game. An action-packed weekend of Chiefs hockey is ahead, I hope to see you at the rink. ◗ Barry Douglas is a the sales and marketing manger for the Chilliwack Chiefs.

Chilliwack Rapids midfielder Keegan Slee (left) marks his Abbotsford Mariner counterpart in U-21 soccer action Friday evening at Exhibition Field.

Peewee Red D-stroys Ridge The Chilliwack Peewee Red Giants’ defence demolished their Meadow Ridge opponents en route to a 12-0 victory in their last game of the season. Meadow Ridge Blue’s offence finished with minus43 yards over the whole game and was unable to mark a first down. Tommy Janzen registered two sacks for the Giants,

Minor football pushed their offence out of bounds three times for a loss of six yards and made a one arm solo tackle as if he were throwing a rag doll. Justin Crooks finished with a sack and two solo tackles for a total loss of 16 yards. Colin Campbell and Nicholas But-

ler also each had sacks. Behind an offensive line led by Kaylee Roger and Pharoah Parisian, and Kyle Pascoe, quarterback Brandt Davies completed three of eight passes for 46 yards. Quinn Venier made a big 27-yard catch and carried the ball five times for 18 yards. Locke pounded and pushed up the middle six times for 29 yards. Butler and Crooks provided the two touchdowns on a pair of goal-line rushes.

ore and more households across Chilliwack may be infiltrated with the sounds of Irish music as performer Damian Brennan turns locals onto the Bodhran drum and the penny whistle. Brennan is a member of local band Murphy’s Lagh and has been living in Chilliwack for 18 years. His work teaching kids guitar, Bodhran drum and penny whistle has found an overwhelming interest, so

much so that he can barely keep up. His kids series, Shenanigans, was so popular he is now offering a series for adults, which includes guitar and songwriting with an emphasis on researching old Irish songs with a Canadian connection. To wet your whistle, Brennan is holding a free information session and workshop on Bodhran drum, tin and low whistles, and Irish guitar on Nov. 26 from noon to 2 p.m. at the Chilliwack

that almost destroyed this giant of the Fraser, and continuing with logging, diking, agricultural developments, and urbanization. These activities had a profound impact on the river’s ecosystems, altering habitats for a wide variety of species, yet providing new economic opportunities for the thousands of people who now call the Fraser Valley home. “We’ve tried to illustrate the effects of these changes in a variety of ways,” says Denman. Kids get a chance to dangle a fishing pole into a small container that contains magnetized fish, some of the 30 species that live in the gravel reach section. As well, the Fraser Valley is home to over 60 per cent of B.C.’s 87 species of dragonflies so the museum borrowed some specimens from the Royal BC Museum to show why wetlands are important to these small darting insects. “It’s an exhibit that asks more questions than it answers,” says Denman, “but I hope that people will walk away with a greater understanding of why it’s so important to work together to maintain the health of one of the greatest natural resources that exists in our country.”

he Fraser River: Its Spirit and Place, is an intimate look at the river that opens at the Chilliwack Museum Nov. 10. “The Fraser River flows right past our community but most of us have very little understanding of its history or place as one of the great rivers of the world,” says Ron Denman, director of the museum and archives. This exhibit aims to provide this history by looking at a far-ranging set of topics that provide the Fraser’s gravel reach section, the part that flows by Chilliwack, with its own unique characteristics. Long before Simon Fraser travelled the length of the river in 1808, the Sto:lo lived in an ever-expanding series of riverside villages that stretched from the canyon, near Yale, to Vancouver. Sto: lo history is intimately tied to the river and includes origin stories about the creation of the river and all of the local landmarks. “ When Simon Fraser arrived, he encountered a rich, mature culture that lived with what the river could provide,” said Denman. Change came quickly, though, after Fraser’s brief visit. It began with the gold rush and continued with the industrialization of the river, starting with the great sturgeon fisheries in the 1890s

hilliwack Christian singer/songwriter Rob Berg came home from the 33rd annual Covenant Awards on Oct. 28 with best folk/roots album of the year award. Berg won for his album Last Goodbye, which was released in January of this year. The win at the awards in Calgary was a rare situation as it was awarded as a tie with another singer, Steve Bell. Berg was nominated for two other: best folk/roots song of the year (“Seasons of Life”); and country/bluegrass song of the year (Falling Up). Berg has actually released his second album of this year, an acoustic album Wide Eyed Wonder in September. His newest album is the second half of a series of acoustic sessions begun over seven years ago when he travelled to Romania with his friend Berni Kitzmueller to record. “I returned home from Europe in late 2004, and recorded several more songs in similar fashion to complete this two-album project,” he said. “This is the second half

or more than 30 years, Jim Byrnes has woven roots so deeply into the northern blues scene that it’s difficult to remember that this quintessentially Canadian icon was raised in St. Louis, and that his instantly recognizable gruff-as-sandpaper, sweet-as-honey voice was not always an essential part of this country’s musical landscape. The Harrison Festival Society presents the return of this multiple Juno-award-winning blues performer Nov. 12 at 8 p.m. in the Harrison Memorial Hall. Byrnes’ latest album, Everywhere West, marks the fourth collaboration with Junoaward-winning musician and producer Steve Dawson. Fans of their previous work can rest assured that the intricate acoustic melodies, dirty blues guitar, funky organ and passionate interplay between the two men are here in spades. If anything, the conversation goes a little deeper this time around and the playing is more assured and trusting than it’s ever been before. Listening back to some of the tracks from the album, it’s obvious that Byrnes is thrilled

Obituaries

Raymond Dussault

Raymond Dussault passed away quietly on November 7, 2011 after a short, intense battle with Alzheimers Disease. He is survived by his beloved wife and soulmate Lesley, who shared a 38 year love story. Ray is also survived by two daughters, Christina Nuttall (Derek), Angela Rempel (Rob) and three grandchildren Gareth, Erin and Nathaniel. Ray will be remembered as a loving husband, father and grandfather. He loved being with his grandchildren, watching them grow and was a big part of their precious lives; he regularly attended their activities and events. He was a talented magician who never tired of entertaining. Ray worked at Royal City Foods, retiring at age 50, when he and Lesley became Caregivers for Bev and Rhonda and also a respected volunteer at Chilliwack Opportunity Society where he became one of the gang. Ray and Les travelled extensively always enjoying where they visited, especially Mexico and her people. He took pleasure in swimming with the dolphins, parasailing, biking, auto sports, and good food. Suddenly Alzheimers disease attacked him and very quickly progressed, making him a stranger even to himself. A celebration of life will be held at 2 pm on November 11, 2011 at Chilliwack Opportunity Society, 10135 Williams Road. Donations in Raymond’s name to the annual Chilliwack Alzheimers walk held in January would be appreciated.

Demetrios James Kosmas passed away in the company of his family peacefully on Saturday, November 5th at the Bradley Center of Chilliwack Hospital. Demetrios was 84 years old. He was born in Kalamata, Province of Greece in 1927 and immigrated to Canada in 1955 and started a family with his wife Stavroula. He became an entrepreneur and had many successes. His biggest success was the Jims Pizza franchise and starting The Vault Pub in Chilliwack in 2004.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Embrace change. Embrace dreams, mystery, subconscious urges, large finances, intimacy, commitment and consequences. Look far ahead before you tie up your future. You might change your mind (or heart) in a few weeks or months. However, if you’re sure, wrap things up now. A slowdown begins next week. Health diagnosis or surgery might be needed. Sunday’s busy, easy. Focus on your home, family, security Monday/Tuesday. Romance lures you midweek – and succeeds – but don’t miss a splendid work-earnings opportunity Wednesday. (Pursue it further Friday.) Taurus April 20-May 20: Start wrapping things up – a slowdown begins next week. Grab opportunities, shake hands, make agreements, conclude negotiations.Your romantic and creative sides intensify now to next July – take note Friday eve, Saturday. Earlier, Sunday’s for shopping, earning. (Good for movies, computer games.) Communications, short trips, paperwork fill Monday/Tuesday – duties restrict you, but you still succeed. Head for home Wednesday to Friday morning – some happy, good things happen here – and they seem connected to love, affection. You could meet “the one” Friday eve/night! Gemini May 21-June 20: A slowdown starts next week. Use the present interval to complete chores so they won’t interfere with a “homecoming” late month into December. You might be literally going home, or revisiting a place you once relocated to, or homecoming might be in the heart: meeting an “ex,” even a former opportunity in business or public dealings – but that’s next week onward. For now, finish those chores. Your energy and effectiveness are high Sunday. Chase money or shop Monday/ Tuesday – don’t buy used items. Midweek’s busy, affectionate. Investments succeed, Wednesday to Saturday.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Romance, creativity, adventure, beauty and pleasure continue to flow. Take a rest Sunday – withdraw and dream, contemplate, plan.Your intuition is high this eve, especially regarding finances. Your energy, charisma and effectiveness soar Monday/Tuesday: you might meet someone very attractive. Marriage/partnership plays a significant role. Something begins, something breaks. Chase money and/or shop Wednesday/Thursday – success promised, both socially and in buying clothes for work. Charm and a bargain combine. Prestige errands, travel and a flirtation come, Friday/Saturday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Wrap up projects now. Next week brings a slowdown. Only start things you can complete in a few days. DON’T begin extensive home repairs or renovations before Dec. 13/14. Generally, you remain in a sluggish rest period this week. Take care of domestic, security and property concerns. Sunday’s happy, hopeful. (Intuition’s high about future finances.) Retreat, rest, contemplate and plan Monday/Tuesday. Your energy, charisma and romantic outlook rise nicely Wednesday/Thursday. Charm can lead to a career-earnings plum! Chase money Friday/ Saturday, but don’t spend it. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: A slowdown arrives next week, so complete projects and reach final understandings now, especially in domestic, property and similar affairs. Read Gemini for a clue to upcoming weeks: you might grab a property deal that eluded you, or experience a unique nostalgia about family or home. For now, though, stay busy, communicate, tackle paperwork, errands and meetings. Sunday’s for prestige, ambitions. Your popularity and joy rise Monday/Tuesday. Retreat Wednesday/Thursday: tiredness and romance mingle, which could cause a learning experience. Your energy and charisma surge Friday/Saturday.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Complete rather than start projects. A slowdown looms on the near horizon. Spend, earn, sell. You might have been frustrated over the last few months, as an investment, house purchase or sexual relationship hasn’t seemed to gel. Perhaps you needed to figure out distance (commuting) factors, or couldn’t quite find the words to speak to someone. That looming slowdown will bring a re-examination of these matters. By late December (into mid-2012) you’ll be ready to move decisively on life-changing financial, sexual or lifestyle actions. Wishes might be granted Wednesday/Thursday! Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness remain high. Get out. March forth, impress people, call in favours, seek permission. Tackle intimidating tasks. Usually I’d say start big projects – but not now. A period of delay, mistakes and second thoughts begins next week, so finish rather than start. Sunday brings mysteries and the joys of investigation. Lovers feel a sweet intimacy. Wisdom, gentle love come Monday/Tuesday: buy nothing. Be ambitious midweek: good money and a good agreement are possible. Friday/Saturday bring success at work, and some co-worker hi-jinks. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Your tiredness will only last another nine days. Until then, rest, dress and eat sensibly, and contemplate – your soul, your life and future actions. Don’t plan too precisely or too near in the future, as conditions will change. (An element of delay, even of “backwardation,” will exist from Nov. 23 to Dec. 13.) Others hold the aces Sunday, so join, don’t compete. DON’T invest or make any commitments Monday/Tuesday. Wisdom, gentle love and intellectual and travel themes arrive Wednesday to Friday. Be ambitious – and gracious, forgiving – Friday/Saturday.

Nov. 13 - 19, 2011 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: A late wish might come true, as your round of socializing, flirtation, optimism and entertainment continues – for nine days. After this, it’s “quiet time.” Tackle chores Sunday – you’ll put your hand on just the right job. Relationships dominate Monday/Tuesday. Successes mingle with some frustration – but overall these two days bless you, especially if you’re diplomatic and eager.Wednesday to noon Friday unearths depths, subconscious longings, sensual desires. You could have a secret interlude. Be a detective. Friday p.m. starts a weekend of wisdom, mellow joys, and indecision. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Remain ambitious, but don’t start new projects, nor plan any new ventures before Dec. 13. Complete projects and tasks instead. E.g., don’t ask your boss for more responsibility now, because he/she might give you something to handle before mid-December, and it could go unflatteringly awry. Sunday’s romantic and creative – you’re alluring. Plunge into chores Monday/Tuesday (but practise safety Monday morn, Tuesday night). Relationships grow intense midweek – major luck can come midweek through Saturday in a financial situation, and/or in sexual intimacy. A new friend, or old? Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Your mellow, thoughtful mood continues. Soon, you’re going to be temporarily shunted back to a busy old career or prestige/ status role (perhaps in your neighbourhood) so take advantage of the present restful, sweet time. Sunday’s for relaxation, home, daydreams. Romance, passion, creativity and a winning streak visit you Monday/ Tuesday. Don’t violate anyone’s dignity. Tackle chores midweek: a friendly yet challenging person or proposal might greet you – say yes. Bosses like you Thursday. Friday afternoon into Saturday brings exciting meetings, a sensual clinch or a “money deal.” timstephens@shaw.ca
